In the Dungeons & Dragons game, ethergaunts are fictional, ancient aberrations that once inhabited the Material Plane, but nearly ten millennia ago abandoned it for the Ethereal Plane. They view the current inhabitants of the Material Plane as vermin infesting their ancient homeworld, and seek to exterminate them.

Ethergaunts look like extremely emaciated humanoids standing nearly 8 feet tall. They hide their alien faces behind masks, while tendrils hang from their head like long hair. Ethergaunts refer to themselves as "khen-zai". Their society consists of a rigid caste system. Ethergaunts reproduce asexually once during their lifespans. Known for their advanced technology, ethergaunts employ a variety of unique items.

Types of EthergauntsEdit

Black Ethergaunt: Black ethergaunts stand at the pinnacle of khen-zai society, honored as near divine philosopher-scientists.

Red Ethergaunt: The reds serve the race as scouts, trackers, and low-level diplomats.

White Ethergaunt: The whites serve the race as scholars, philosophers, diplomats, and bureaucrats.
